London based lawyer Sadakat Kadri called upon the British public to give a chance to sharia tribunals. In his speech, delivered at the annual Hay Festival in Wales, he highlighted the importance of the tribunals in terms of solving the problems of the Muslim community, especially the women. Kadri stressed that if the tribunals do not operate, then the process will take place behind closed doors and thus lack the crucial element of transparency.
He also clarified some of the misconception about sharia.
